Spring weather outlook; unpermitted events in Ga. targeted; high school football coach charged with murder

*Wetter than normal conditions are headed Georgia’s way from March through May, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Its latest forecast shows the current El Niño is bringing cool, wet weather to the South. January was colder than normal in the Peach State, with highs averaging 46 degrees. NOAA also projects a transition from El Niño to the opposite phase, La Niña, between April and June.  
*By a 47-1 vote, the Georgia Senate has passed a bill targeting unpermitted events in the state. Senate Bill 443 would hold organizers of events like Orange Crush on Tybee Island, financially responsible. Tybee officials say the city spent more than $187,000 last year for security to control unruly crowds attending the event.

*The head football coach at Spalding High School in Griffin has been charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend in Maryland. Carl Kearney, Jr., was arrested Saturday in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
